Help from an unexpected quarter: geosciences data techniques can help predict corona spread

Help from an unexpected quarter: geosciences data techniques can help predict corona spread

An international team of scientists is studying the possibility of using data assimilation, a data technique from geosciences, to predict the spread of coronavirus and the efficacy of certain measures. TU Delft geoscientists on the team think that data assimilation might prove a useful tool for the RIVM epidemiologists. A paper on the subject has been submitted to scientific journal Foundations of Data Science.
